the rest of this profile is a work in progress
Wandered through the Northeast growing up, now serving as an education consultant. I went back an forth between my Dad's family and my single Mom; in a bourgy suburb and a developing city. Two years of high school in western Massachusetts and then college in Providence, RI for International Relations and Literary Arts.
Writing is something I want to pursue insofar as it helps people via social advocacy, improving living situations, or just making people laugh. Possible alternate futures include but are not limited to fiction, new journalism, writing for social causes and non-profits, and scriptwriting. Right now, I work giving private guidance to students; either helping them gain more opportunities or working with them to be less douchy (it's an important conversation to not be self-involved, and the sooner the better).
Moving from place to place let me encounter a wide range of people from many walks of life, and it's important to me that everybody find places, even if it's just a loose confederation of other folks who also occupy multiple cultural spaces. Hence why I'm in New York drinking whisky and looking for banter.
I'm super qualified for this, because I don't know what I want to be when I grow up either.
Going back to school for comedy (standup/screen) writing
Movies: High Fidelity, Rachel Getting Married, Kiki's Delivery Service, A Knight's Tale, Big Fish. Next: Birdman, Blade Runner, The Lego Movie
